Getting consistent, well-rounded support can be a tricky thing to achieve, especially in a western world where values like Individualism, competition, and general avoidance of emotion are so prevalent.

We will look at a variety of different techniques and approaches that we can weave together so each unique individual can find their own holistic support system.

    – Explore a variety of techniques & strategies
    – Build a system that works for you individually and/or for your communities
    – Increase awareness about the support you or your communities may be needing
    – Create a network that is sustainable and offers consistent support
